the shawl cardigan

cardigan: american apparel // blouse: joe fresh // jeans: gap // necklace: unknown (gifted) // boots: jeffrey campbell // bag: 3.1 phillip lim x target 

It's no secret I live in a pretty chilly place, not only is it chilly but it's like this for about 6 months out of the year (yes that is a fact). When you live somewhere so cold you tend to accumulate quite the collection of sweaters (much to my boyfriends dismay haha). I usually go for the same kind of sweater like a classic cable knit but sometimes you find something special. That was the case when it came to this sweater from American Apparel. I haven't worn it in a while since getting it last year and I don't really have an excuse for it but it probably has to do with the million I already have and it got lost. Since rediscovering it, I haven't been able to take it off because of it's blanket quality. It's what I like to call a socially acceptable blanket to wear out in public! haha and what's not to love about that?
